  • A mixture of skills and social rides (that cater to different levels)
  • Fostering women’s participation in MTB races- Merida Hidden Vale 24hr 9/10 April, Chicks in the Sticks Women’s 3Hr MTB enduro (August), including information sessions and training rides
  • Encouraging women to find riding buddies through Facebook, Bushrangers MTB Club Sunshine Coast Group, Bike Riders, Caloundra MTB (CORCA)
